DOWNWARD DOG – What the critics think of it (just cancelled)

downward dog90% of critics give this show a positive review.

Show just got cancelled. One of the top critical shows of 2017.

 

 

 

 

 

A sweet little show, low key and more smile-worthy than hilarious, Downward Dog won’t be for everyone. Animal lovers (count me in that group) are likely to find it adorable; cynics, unless they really, really love dogs, probably should stay away.

You don’t need to be a dog lover to love Downward Dog. There’s something universal about the sensation that comes from seeing the world a little differently.

Downward Dog obviously could have gone very wrong. Instead it gets almost everything irresistibly right.

Downward Dog is primarily for dog lovers. Only they can fully grasp what no one else does and which this new series so obviously does as well: Dogs are people, too.

The show has its fair share of problems out of the gate, but there’s an earnestness and sweetness to this story of a woman and her four-legged best friend that serves it well.

I don’t know how Downward Dog found its way onto a broadcast TV network’s comedy slate, but after steamrolling through the four episodes made available to critics, I’m just thrilled it did.

HOUSE OF CARDS Season 5 – What the critics are saying about it!!

house of card season 5.jpg76% of critics have praised the new season.

The bleakest (yet somehow still extremely fun to watch) season of the show yet.

A good start after last season’s erratic finish.

Having laid to rest the long-standing charge that House of Cards was too absurd to be taken seriously as “prestige television”, the Netflix caper has rediscovered its cocksure strut.

Even with the thick miasma of dread and vague impending doom that hangs over the season, the show still excels at providing viewers with laugh-out-loud moments that one just doesn’t see coming.

It sometimes seems as if the series’ showrunner is an episode of Morning Joe that has somehow gained sentience and really likes poorly framed wide shots.

All of a sudden, the presidential drama finds itself tragically behind the curve. What a pity — it would have been so subversive if Hillary Clinton had won.

Five seasons in, House of Cards still trades in predictable scripting that recycles the same themes time and again.

The atmosphere feels looser, more wild and daring.
